Oven Cleaning Questions

There are some questions that we are asked so many times when we are visiting our clients and cleaning their ovens.  I am going to answer some of them here.  We love speaking about our service so if you have a question about oven cleaning please drop me an email or give me a call and I will be more than happy to offer advice and answer your queries.  

So the commonly asked questions when we visit our clients homes:

"How bad is my oven?  I bet you see some shocking.  How does mine compare?"

Well.  We do clean a wide range of ovens.  From the nearly new, to the very old and extremely dirty.  Every summer we clean literally hundreds of student accommodation ovens so there is not much we have not seen in terms of oven mess.  The important thing to remember is that our price is fixed and you will NEVER be charged more if your oven is dirtier than average.  To be honest it does not take much longer to clean a very dirty oven as you have to go through the same process regardless of the grime level.

"What can I do to keep on top of my oven?  Are there any products that you can recommend?"  

This one is simple, and possibly a little boring.  Clean it regularly with a mild cleaner.  Do not try and give it a blast with harsh chemical cleaners as this is when people are more likely to damage their appliance.  I would not go as far as recommending individual products to use, all I would stay is steer clear of any products that contain caustics and have big black crosses on the label.  

"How often should I get my oven cleaned?"

The answer to this is less straightforward.  You may cook for a family and make a dozen hot meals a week.  On the other hand you could seldom use the oven and when you do it tends to be simple meals that do not really make your oven very dirty.  For some they may have there oven cleaned as a one-off event connected to a house move, for others it becomes part of their household cleaning regime.  We have clients who we visit every three months and, more commonly we have people who we visit on an annual basis.  

Please let us know if you have any questions for us.  It is always great to hear from you.
